hes moved around alot yes, but if youve read any of the wiz threads from the past month its clear that he often landed in the wrong place at the wrong time and was often not traded because he was a "whipping boy". ive heard the exact opposite about montreal fans. ive heard many MTL fans saying theyd rather have markov walk and keep wisniewski. NYI and MTL fans were pretty thrilled with his performance this past year. im sorry but ive been following wisniewski since he was a 16 yr old in plymouth-canton michigan, and i have never heard him be described as a whipping boy. perhaps when he was with the hawks or ducks because he was so green, but i dont think so. even they were thrilled with his level of intensity and the caliber of his hits and fights. this year he finally started living up to his offensive potential and i think it would be un-wise to pass on him.
Oddly, most of the MTL fans that I've read on message forum echo the same things "let Wiz walk". They said he makes lots of bonehead plays and poor decision making. I'm not saying Holland shouldn't pursue him, but I wouldn't be upset if he doesn't come here either. I'd be just as happy if Chicago overpay to get him, and strapping their cap situation even worse.
Did Joni Pitkanen re-sign with 'Canes?
